If you are staying at our bed and breakfast accommodation over the next few weeks and want to watch a Christmas Pantomime while you are in the North East then we have compiled a comprehensive list of all the Pantomimes taking place.

Cinderella at Newcastle Theatre Royal, 100 Grey Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6BR from 22nd November 2016 until 15th January 2017.

Cinderella will be brought spectacularly to life in a sumptuous production packed with special effects, family-friendly comedy, stunning sets, outrageous costumes, and that most magical pantomime moment when Cinderella is transported to the Prince’s Ball with the help of a pumpkin, some mice and lots of Fairy Godmother magic.

Jack and the Beanstalk at Gala Theatre Durham, 1 Millennium Place, Durham, DH1 1WA from 24th November 2016 until 7th January 2016

After last year’s acclaimed and best-selling Cinderella, Neil Armstrong and Paul Hartley are back to write, direct and star in the Gala Theatre Pantomine once more as they bring you the heroic and hilarious tale of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Sleeping Beauty at Sunderland Empire Theatre, High Street West, Sunderland, SR1 3EX from 9th until 31st December 2016.

Packed full of hilarious jokes, show-stopping song and dance, larger-than-life characters, colourful costumes, sparkling sets and amazing CGI special effects, Sleeping Beauty is set to be another spectacular pantomime that promises to add a fairy tale touch to your festive season.

Jack and the Beanstalk at The Customs House, Mill Dam, South Shields, NE33 1ES from 29th November 2016 until 7th January 2017.

This year’s production will star Ray Spencer – who many will know as his former alter ego Tommy the Trumpeter – as Dame and panto regulars Luke Maddison as Jack and Steven Lee Hamilton as baddie Fleshcreep.

James and the Giant Peach at Newcastle Northern Stage, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RH from 19th November until 31st December 2016.

This adaption of the much loved Roald Dahl story is packed full of songs, a sprinkling of joining in, and of course a giant juicy peach. Northern Stage’s show will capture the imagination of the whole family.

Beauty and the Beast at Tyne Theatre & Opera House, 117 Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4AG from 2nd until 30th December 2016.

This year Newcastle Panto present the enchanting story of Beauty and the Beast. In a small French village, the beautiful and intelligent Belle ignores her suitor, the vain and boorish Gaston, as she cares for her father, eccentric inventor Maurice.
